Hi shir, Hiatal hernia is most often an aggravating factor in acid reflux / LPR symptoms, I honestly don’t know why this condition would result in IBS symptoms. As for weight loss, diarrhea is an indication of malabsorption – and calorie loss. Correcting the problem is the key. Once corrected, weight can be maintained on either low carb or moderate carb diet.
